Hello,

This hole MUST work :) it will not pop out the tray like it does after clicking button.

You have to poke this hole GENTLY, deep while deeply you push then more will the tray come out. When it comes enough to grab it with fingers then you will pull it easly.

Check video below to see how.


Leave rate if I helped you, thanks!!

Cheers,
Mike

Replace cd player


There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Opening cd player


What about opening the cd player?

Are you saying the cd drawer will not open when you push the button? If so, try the steps below.

Take a paper clip (Gem Clip) and straighten it out then get in front of the cd drawer where you place the cd. Look for a small tiny hole on the drawer and insert the paper clip (Gem Clip) into the tiny hole and push it in while you press the button on the drawer. Don't worry about breaking something, use a little force to push the paper clip in, that's why that hole is there.

Dvd drawer locked and dvd wont play


Is it a store purchased dvd movie or is it a dvd that someone made and gave to you? Computers sometimes have problems reading cd's and dvd's that someone made. Try a store purchased movie dvd or music cd.

When you press the button on the dvd drawer it does not eject? Clcik Start/My Computer then Right Click on the DvD Drive and click Eject.

If it still does not open, take a Gem Clip (Paper Clip) and straighten it out as much as possible. Then look at the DvD Drawer and you will see a tiny hole that you can insert the Gem Clip (Paper Clip) into. Push the Gem Clip (Paper Clip) while you press the button on the Dvd Drawer and drawer will open. Don't worry about damaging or breaking something, that is why that tiny hole is there.

Cannot eject cd.


I assume you have tried the usual method of ejecting by pressing eject on tray. If this fails get a large paper clip (or similar) and straighten it out. Make sure machine is switched on, insert paper clip into tiny hole on cd tray near eject button and push into hole. This should open tray. That is the purpose of this tiny hole. Hope this helps!
